Childhood Myopia

What do studies about myopia tell us?

The truth is that it is always a good time to prevent your children’s vision from worsening.   Childhood myopia rates are increasing, with 1 in 3 children now affected.

By controlling myopia, we are not only preserving your child’s vision we are also saving their eyes from potential diseases as they age.

 

We now live in a world which is increasingly spent indoors (Zoom meetings, computer use, etc.) and this trend does not seem to be ending any time soon. 

 

Multiple studies show myopia becoming much more common in children, showing up at earlier ages and progressing more rapidly.  Many researchers believe reduced outdoor time and increased screen time on devices are part of the problem.
